Default Thriller Dance moves!

So, I am signing up for this Thriller dance that is done on Halloween in the town I am living in. I want to practice a little before the practices start. However, I am a totally clumsy and need a slow explanation but the ones I am finding on YouTube seem to go a bit fast for me.

Any suggestions for a good video?

Sorry, I can't help you. I just had flashbacks to friends in high school knowing all of the Michael Jackson moves. Blast from the past!

I also have no practical advice for you, but just wanted to say that it all sounds like so much fun! I wonder if you can hook up with someone else who is also doing the dance and practice together, that would certainly help me if I were doing it!

Anyway, it really sounds like a good time, so have fun with it!

That sounds epic! For me if I'm ever trying to learn a dance from a youtube video I find they aaaaaall go way too fast (I'm a slow learner lol), so my only advice is to pause pause pause and rewind as often as you need. I've tried slowing down the actual video to see if that would help me before, but it's much better to just pause when you need a second to get the hang of something!

Thanks you guys! I did find a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64IFWjzJuMg) that is really good. She does it in two parts and it is about a half an hour long so it works in case you are interested in it just for fun. (She also does it for wide variety of music videos but some are more advanced than others)

I figured this would be a good way to exercise and have some fun. I have been flaky about exercising lately so I figured this would help.

Sounds like fun! [Bump] so I can watch when I get home!
I watched a Zumba Halloween video and the song they chose was Thriller. It was fun!

A few years ago at my job, on Halloween, some of the office gang recreated the entire Thriller performance.

They started it by announcing that Michael Jackson was arriving in the front parking lot over the company intercom. Then, an employee who was built like Michael Jackson with a mask on, was driven up to the front door in a limo with security guards!

Many people in costume joined the Michael Jackson impersonator in the lobby and did a perfect performance of Thriller. It was amazing!

I hope you have a lot of fun!
